Just Imagine Working Here/ Industry Visits

Just Imagine Working Here is an initiative which connects local primary schools, targeting Y5 pupils, with businesses and facilitates a group of students visiting the employer that they are matched with.

These visits  serve to give young people a greater understanding of the world of work and the vast range of career options that could be open to them. When businesses open their doors to students, they can help inspire the future workforce and motivate students to work hard in their academic studies.

Visits normally last for 2-3 hours during the Summer term with students undertaking a variety of activities decided by the business. This could involve being shown around the building/site, having a go at a hands-on activity related to the field of work and having an opportunity to speak to employees about their job roles.

For further information or if your school or organisation would like to get involved in Just Imagine Working Here this year please contact Helen Guyatt on helen.guyatt@derby.gov.uk

Industry visits can also be arranged for secondary school students. For more information on Industry Visits see our Industry Visits Factsheet.
